I do not remember The Frozen Throne stating they stopped raising their slain enemies, only that the Dreadlord trio "was running the Scourge into the ground". That could ultimately mean anything from...

Ah, so you generally take these origin stories as absolute and without room for an expansion in the entirety of the Third War. A rather unusual interpretation as far as I can see, but at least you...

I'd say that Battle for Azeroth's greatest issue and damn shame is that the general story idea is not particularly suited for an MMO, yet would have been perfect in an RTS game. Not only would an RTS...

You can write literature without working for a company or writing fanfiction. I would not say Tolkien was writing his work for profit, yet neither would I call it fanfiction.

I assume you are talking about writing for games, films, etc Kyalin, as when it comes to belles lettres (in its original meaning), it absolutely should not work like that. You don't craft art to be...

Yes, the developments are already set. They are set so that dozens of hero and normal units get new skins and models where it makes sense to increase variety. We are getting female dreadlords,...

I was not stating this to address your emotions, those are your own problem and do not concern me, but to address the notion this could be objectivelly an issue as presented by IGoD.

If by it you mean being apocalyptic and related to "unite the races to save teh world", it does detract from it.

I am talking about shadowy spirits of the forest guarding and prowling in the lands of Northern Kalimdor. No large urban centres, just countless small villages and communities doting the...
